Each Quarterly box comes with a letter from the curator detailing the items and why they were selected for the box. This box’s focus is on convention life!


Abomination – Value $12.34 on Amazon

This book is getting good reviews on Amazon. Here’s a brief synopsis from Amazon:

He is England’s greatest knight, the man who saved the life of Alfred the Great and an entire kingdom from a Viking invasion. But when he is called back into service to combat a plague of monstrous beasts known as abominations, he meets a fate worse than death and is condemned to a life of anguish, solitude, and remorse.

She is a fierce young warrior, raised among an elite order of knights. Driven by a dark secret from her past, she defies her controlling father and sets out on a dangerous quest to do what none before her ever have―hunt down and kill an abomination, alone.

When a chance encounter sets these two against one another, an incredible twist of fate will lead them toward a salvation they never thought possible―and prove that the power of love, mercy, and forgiveness can shine a hopeful light even in history’s darkest age.

Might not be my type of book, but Liz may like it.


Harley Quinn Dorbz – Value $8.83 on Amazon

We’re seeing a ton of Dorbz in geek boxes lately – and I think that trend will continue. Dorbz are made by Funko. At first, I didn’t like them at all, but I’m coming around to them.

Rubik’s Cube Stress ball – Value $6.99

We recently received a similar Rubik’s cube stress ball. I always use these things at my desk while I’m coding – so I love getting new ones!


Here’s a closer look at the cube.


Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris – Value $19.22 on Amazon

I’ve wanted to try this game out, but, like so many Steam games, it’s PC only! I love the inclusion of games in boxes, but I can see how it’s tough to cover all systems.


Jaunt VR Viewer – Value ?

We also receive a cardboard VR headset in a recent box, and were totally blown away! It’s interesting to get this, because last box they had a spoiler for a Google cardboard headset, which we didn’t receive. But, here it is this month! If you haven’t tried these out yet, you totally should! It’s cool!


Harley Quinn #20 – Value $3.99

We also get the most recent issue of the latest Harley Quinn run! I love getting comics in boxes, and I’m excited to try out a Harley Quinn comic!


Adam Lister Batman/Joker Print – Value $5-10?

I really like this abstract print! It’s an 8×10 print on a thick paper, and is semi-glossy. Very cool!

Verdict: This month’s box had great value for the cost – which isn’t always the case with a Quarterly box! I thought all the items were great, and while they were lightly themed (reading through the card connects the items more to conventions than the items by themselves) a lot of the items went well together.

  1. Wow! This lookedike a pretty fun box! Eric, I always feel bad for you when there are downloads all I can think is computer games seem to have always come out at least on PC and appears that is still continuing. Only good thing is that on Steam and Metacritic this particular Lara game doesn’t gave the best scores so you’re probably not missing out.
    Those Dorbz are super cute! I like them just like the regular Funko Pops. (And much better than Titans. The faces are weird in Titans). I got that Rubik’s cube stress in a previous box and my son claimed it for himself! Then his baby brother bit a chunk of it off (I got the piece he didn’t ingest it). And for weeks he has been asking for his cube. I broke down and used that link you provided, thanks, to buy two cubes. Why two? Just in case another one gets eaten.
    Love that art print and U have been so intrigued by these viewers. I mentioned one to my geeky hubby and he got all excited about them too. Despite the game and book (sounds kind of ‘meh).this still feels like a good box. I’m not sure if value is there though but the viewer probably makes it worth it.

  2. Hey Eric,
    Not sure if it’s the same one, but I’m positive I was playing Laracraft on the PS4 with my friend this past summer. I know it was the same characters and the game was awesome with multiple people. The puzzles changed accordingly. Hopefully it help, and correct me if I’m wrong! I just remember it being a free game we tried out.

    • Thanks! I’ll take a look for it!
